Crochet Owls, Knitted piggies & Garlic Harvest

This time of year is always busy, the veg garden comes to life and the toys orders roll in for xmas. I need to grow an extra pair of arms just to get all the jobs done.

These are a few of the toys that have been made this last week. The owls are my favourite because they are fun to make and turn out really cute with their big eyes .
The Piggies are a bit more fiddly but do seem popular with most people.
I made a purple one last week as a special order for a lady and it turned out rather nice. It never occurred to me to make a purple one.
The big chicken below is my own crochet & knit creation. Its still in the development stage. The little chickens surrounding it are from an old pattern I found on Ebay many years ago.  


I've had a bit of a break from knitting & crocheting . The last couple of days I've spent outside which has been great. The veg garden is going crazy, the warm weather has caused the seedlings to take off , the peas are ready to pick and the garlic has been harvested. Below are a few photos of the veg garden and if you want to know more then this is the link to my GARDEN PAGE
